Vikram Lets Newsweek Sleep In
Well, well, well, looks like our good friend Vikram Chatwal is back in the news.
You would think a socialite hotelier would know how to play the media game. You know, turn on the charm when the travel media is around, then let things slip as soon as they check out. However, it looks like the Dream Hotel likes to play it straight, no matter the guest.
Here is what happened when Newsweek sent a group of business travel editors to stay at the "Dream" Hotel.
Hotel owner Vikram Chatwal says, "Eclectic design and fancy marketing don't cut it anymore for the business traveler who's educated enough to know when they are getting the right product for the right price."
But it's hard to reconcile that with the blue luminescent photos (mostly of naked women) that greet guests as they step outside the elevators on each floor. Here's an even worse sin: during enterprise's recent stay, the Dream neglected to place our morning wake-up call, requiring a mad dash to the airport. For a business traveler, there's no greater nightmare.
Guess by "dream" Vikram means "oversleep."
